Hi @Mick, welcome!
I don’t remember if Jim circles back to the 8 dynamic questions or not, but I did find his entire podcast to be extremely useful in learning Dramatica. I’m not sure if he intends to start it up again, but you can find ongoing education from him in the Subtext writer’s room if you can swing a subscription.
Jim also has a tremendous number of articles on Narrative First which are useful. I think he collected a bunch into book form a few years ago, so you could read that. For analysis, you can listen to the Dramatica user’s group podcasts.
Once you start writing, I highly recommend Dramatica for Screenwriters – it’s the best practical introduction (indispensable in my opinion) to understand how to apply the theory (not just for screenwriters).
Finally, use the search feature on these boards, and then come back with specific questions on things that need clarification. Good luck!
